Birdy returns with a new stripped back sound on this her latest release Young Heart after a 4-year absence from the music scene. Dealing with heartbreak there is a definite sense of pain, confusion and resolve on Young Heart.
Recorded and finished just before the pandemic hit, the release was held back and gave Birdy time to tear back some of the unneeded noise on the album. What we are left with is a melancholy sound that flourishes with hope from time to time.
It’s hard to believe that at 24 it is now 9 years since Birdy’s debut album. She has definitely grown into her voice but it still sounds as pleasurable as ever.
